Connections: July 7


SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAYou may recall, dear reader,

I’ve skirmished and I’ve battled

against these long-eared monsters

until I am quite addled.

My back yard smells like garlic

the air of phlox destroyed

yet he can sit and stare at me

as though he’s the one annoyed.

My once pacific spirit

from violence aloof

now sees this toothy glutton

as earmuffs on the hoof.

  1. I have a plethora of chipmunks and squirrels. I can’t stand the sight of them. Our one and only rabbit is a pet, and we enjoy him because he only eats what we pick for him. 🙂

    • A plethora of chipmunks! Oh, no! That makes my rabbits look like a blessing. And squirrels too? Nasty. Now a pet rabbit is an entirely different species: it has a certain decorum. It would never eat your favorite dianthus right out of the garden border.
